Prepare teachers to support and instruct struggling readers and English Language Learners in grades 4+ with a reading intervention that is aligned with reading science.
The Reading Horizons Elevate® professional development and implementation resources prepare teachers to do the following:
Align Instruction with Reading Science
During a Reading Horizons training, teachers get hands-on practice with the activities and strategies that help struggling readers find success. These multisensory strategies align with the science of reading, the Structured Literacy approach, and the Orton-Gillingham approach. During training, teachers learn how to translate reading science into practical and engaging strategies for reading intervention.
Support Struggling Readers and ELLs in the Classroom
After being trained in the Reading Horizons method, teachers are prepared to explain each of the rules and patterns of the English language to struggling readers and English language learners (ELLs). These rules and patterns dramatically decrease reading, spelling, and pronunciation errors and give students a formula for attacking unfamiliar words.
Build District Capacity and Sustainability
The key goal of implementation is to create sustainable results in both instructional fidelity and student performance. To help your school or district achieve this goal, we encourage each customer to select a few teachers or reading specialists to become certified Reading Horizons trainers for their area. This provides in-house experts who can support teachers and provide unlimited staff training at no additional cost.
Review Training Material Anytime
After the initial training, schools can elect to enroll in the Reading Horizons Online Professional Development Course™. This course allows teachers to review training material and refresh their skills. This course can be viewed at anytime from any device with internet access.
